I spied over the holidays.......

The busyness of holiday life meant little time for studio visits and interviews but I do want to share some of the lovely things I saw and, ahem, maybe bought.  I bet you like them too!

A lively pop up sale at the studio space shared by woodworkers Ariel Alasko and Amelie Mancini featured their beautiful work plus that of ceramicist Josephine Heilpern and jeweler Nick Lundeen.  Just look at these hand carved wooden spoons, ceramics, jewelry, printed linens.   I wanted everything!   www.arielealasko.com, www.ameliemancini.com, www.nicklundeen.com, www.recreationcentershop.com
